|You know what long-term care is? It’s a life-changing event that has devastating consequences to others. It is no more or less serious than an unexpected death. *|
|“Look, I don’t think this will ever happen to you, but if it did, do you clearly understand how severe the consequences would be……..?”
This is a very strong message.
“I’m not talking about the risk of needing care, because awareness of that doesn’t motivate people. What I’m talking about is how serious the consequences of needing care will be – not for the person who needs the care, because he doesn’t think it will happen to him, but specifically on the portfolio that he worked a lifetime to create to generate income to allow him to keep his commitments. We also don’t talk enough about the other consequence, which would be the toll on the emotional and physical well-being of those people who have no choice but to put their lives aside to take care of a person who is chronically ill. When physical and cognitive impairments are so devastating that a person becomes absolutely compromised, other people’s lives are put in jeopardy.”*
